The Group of Seven Colouring Book
Group of Seven coloring book features 22 works of art by the pioneering Canadian landscape painters. Coloring pages are blank on the back so they can be cut out and displayed. Click on the small picture to see an interior page.
In this coloring book, you will find 22 paintings of lakes, forests, and mountains by Thomson and the Group of Seven. They are shown as small pictures on the inside front and back covers. You will notice that the painters did not try to make a painting that looked like a photograph. Instead, they used bold brush strokes and simple shapes to tell the story of what it felt like to be in that place. When you color in these pictures, you can either try to copy the original colors and style, or you might decide to use your own.
